Formula One heads to Asia this weekend, Singapore to be exact, and Red Bull will be hoping to replicate last season’s performance.

Daniel Ricciardo finished second behind Sebastian Vettel and former team-mate Daniil ended the race in sixth.

“It seems like a really fun city and I’m really fortunate to get a lot of people coming over from Australia and especially Perth, this means I get a lot of love in Singapore,” the 26-year-old said.

Red Bull are expected to perform well at the Marina Bay Circuit as it has similarities to Monaco where the 26-year-old was on pole but lost the race to Lewis Hamilton.

“Singapore is great, a real night race. Being able to drive through a massive city at night with all the lights flashing between buildings as you go past is an awesome feeling. It’s weird, I think it actually feels like you are going faster at night,” said the Australian Ricciardo

Max Verstappen finished in eighth for Toro Rosso last season in the same race and he will be confident despite his recent struggles.

“Being a night race means it’s a bit different, you have to adapt your braking zone as the light changes from the earlier session to the late ones.

“I enjoyed it a lot last year so I’m excited to go out there again,” Verstappen said.
